Gairy Warns "No Nonsense"

Mr Gairy concluded his address by extending thea Seasons Greetings

to "my dear friends, citizens and visitors", and wished that

1975 will bring "joy, happiness and a greater measure of peace,

progress and prosperity for our new nation, working together

hand in hand as one family for a better Grenada".

'January, 1975

Gairy Warn; No Nonsense "

whereby peace, progress and prosperity may characterize our country*

Let us bear in mind, particularly for the benefit of those

labouring under a complete misapprehension of the purpose of the

inquiry that Grenada is a fully independent nation and can not be

influenced nor controlled by any outside forces. This is

sufficient at this point of time':.

The Prime ministerer said that, as a result of criticisms and

suggestions received from the public, the legal department and the

higher ranks of the Police Department and Defence Force will, very

shortly "be strengthened with some of the best available personnel".

Mr Gciry went on to say that "legislation has been tightened and

in some cases amended to ensure a proper pattern of behaviour.

To ensure peace, progress and prosperity'. And Prime Minister

Gairy gave this warning, "Please remember that some of the nonsense

we experienced earlier this year will not be allowed even to show

the top of their heads any more."


Mr Gairy said his two recent trips to New York had given him

"the opportunity to correct most of the false reports" and also

to "brighten the image" of Grenada, and he thought "the signs of

a healthy tourist trade for this season are clear and precise",

but he said, "our air service is our greatest enemy today".

After thanking the Civil Service, Police, Defence Force and other

departments and categories of workers for their cooperation

during 1974, the Prime Minister said he thanked God that "through

Him we were able to meet our monthly commitments particularly the

paying of salaries to civil servants. He also thanked God "for

the gifts he has given, through me, to present to the poor and to

entertain the children at this time".

Christianity, the symbol of Love end devotion, dedication and

sacrifices. Mr Gairy said that Fort Frederick had been

transformed into a summit of "beauty, serenity, and peace, a

place which invites you to prayer and holy meditation".

Referring to the political unrest in Grenada early in 1974,

Mr Gairy said, "Today we must try to forget the aftermaths, the

effects and the by-products of a dark and ugly dream, some of

which, however, like the cost of living, will always remain with

us". The Prime Minister said hundreds who lost their jobs and

school children who lost a part of their education will "always

have this as a dark and ugly dream".

Calling on his listeners not to let hardships of the past year

dampen their spirits, the Prime Minister said "before the Throne

of God and in humility for all the blessings He has bestowed upon

us, we must ask his continued blessing, we must commit ourselves

to harder work with a view designed to bringing about maximum

productivity in every area of development". "The Time for the

urge of destructionism and obstructionism', he said,"the time for

malicious criticism must be thrown into the dark oblivion of

our history".


Later in his address, Mr Gairy referred to the Duffus Commission

of Inquiry which, some year ago, investigated allegations of

Police brutality in Grenada. "Some people", said the

Prime Minister, "are talking of the Duffus Report. However,

let me say this here and now, that the Duffus Report will not be

a Court decision but simply a document that will come to assist

and to advise my Government along certain lines as a formula
